Spring 2013

So at my appointment in February the consultant said he was pleased with my weight loss but was concerned with my pale 'English rose complexion' and that my endo may have got worse again. He decided the best away forward was for another lap and dye. 

I waited and waited for the appointment and after some pushing from my husband, friends and colleagues, I phoned the hospital to see what was happening. Greeted by a not so friendly secretary I was told that the consultant hadn't marked part of the notes correctly so she had sent my file to be put away and hadn't passed it over to the treatment centre to be scheduled. She said she would do it over the next few days and I should call the treatment centre the following week, which I did. When I called they'd just had my file and said it had been marked as urgent and they could fit me in the following week as there had been a cancellation. This took me a bit by surprise so I spoke to my husband, my Mum and my boss, who all encouraged me to take the date and move forward and that's exactly what I did. The following day I went for my pre-op and bloods.

Baking & blogging!!

So no doubt some of you will have noticed that I have not blogged for quite a while. This is for a couple of reasons, so I will tell you my excuses now! First of our laptop broke and wouldn't stay on for more than a few minutes at a time, which is a bit of a problem when it comes to blogging/typing/doing anything  remotely useful. My place of work doesn't allow us on sites like blogger so I couldn't up date you in my lunch break. Anyway our laptop is now replaced and I have made notes over the last year of things I'd like to share. 
I also wasn't sure that people were overly interested in what I was writing about but after quite a few requests I'm back. I still can't believe how many people, far and wide, actually read my blog! It's quite flattering to know that people from the USA, Denmark, Nigeria, amongst other places, are actually reading my blog. Either that or they've clicked on it in error!!
